Cody and Brandi Rhodes have two dogs, one is a Siberian Husky named Pharaoh that he has brought to WWE wrestling events. After getting spooked by some unexpected fireworks at AEW All Out 2019, Pharaoh made his first official WWE RAW appearance in June 2023.
We had a mishap with Pharaoh once before where some genius fired some pyro off and scared Pharaoh pretty terribly. However, he really has not flinched since then. He has not held it against me. He’s not mad. He’s truly man’s best friendCody Rhodes, WWE’s The Bump, April 2022

Cody Rhodes is an American professional wrestler, promoter, and actor. He is signed to All Elite Wrestling (AEW), where he performs under his real name, he also wrestles as Fuego II as a comedy gimmick, and serves as an Executive Vice President. Rhodes is the son of wrestler Dusty Rhodes, and the half-brother of fellow wrestler Dustin Rhodes. After an amateur wrestling career that resulted in him becoming a two-time Georgia state champion, he followed his father and older brother’s footsteps into the professional ranks and joined WWE in 2006, initially being assigned to the company’s developmental territory Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW). After becoming a Triple Crown Champion in OVW, he was promoted to WWE’s main roster in 2007 and remained there for nine years, performing under his real name and later under the gimmick of Stardust. During his time with WWE, Rhodes became a two-time Intercontinental Champion and was a prolific tag team wrestler, winning six tag team championships (three World Tag Team Championships and three WWE Tag Team Championships) with four separate tag team partners. Rhodes left WWE after requesting his release in May 2016.
In September 2013, Rhodes married fellow professional wrestler Brandi Reed, later known as Brandi Rhodes. On the December 16, 2020 edition of AEW Dynamite, Cody and Brandi announced that they were expecting their first child, a baby girl.
Cody’s crossover appeal has led to collaborations with Snoop Dogg, Shaquille O’Neal, and Stephen Amell, who even competed alongside Cody at All In. In addition, he’s worked with wrestlers such as Jon Moxley, Kenny Omega, and Chris Jericho, producing some of the most talked-about matches in recent years.
